Have Christian leaders really betrayed Trump?
Evangelical leaders, who were once Donald Trump’s backbone, who helped him get elected in 2016 have now turned their backs on him complains former President Donald Trump.
According to Newsweek, former President Donald Trump is complaining that a rather large number of faith leaders who once supported him are now sitting on the sidelines in the earliest stages of Trump’s 2024 presidential run.
Trump complained about Christian leaders not supporting him during an interview with Real America’s Voice. Trump told David Brody that he believes these religious leaders are being “disloyal” to him when he needs them the most.
Trump said Christian leaders are abandoning him even after he delivered on his promise to get the Supreme Court to overturn federal protections for abortion which Trump finds troubling.
Trump stated, “That’s a sign of disloyalty. There’s great disloyalty in the world of politics and that’s a sign of disloyalty because nobody, as you know…has ever done more for [the] right to life than Donald Trump. Three Supreme Court justices and they all voted [to overturn Roe v. Wade]…they won, they finally won!“
Trump went on to add, “I was a little disappointed because I thought they could have fought much harder during the election. A lot of them didn’t fight or weren’t really around to fight, and it did energize the Democrats. But a lot of the people that wanted and fought for years to get it, they sort of…they were there protesting and doing what they could have done.”
“But with all of that being said, there’s nobody that did more for the movement than I have. And that includes the movement of evangelicals and Christians and the movement very much of ‘right to life,'” Trump later added.
